Embedded Controller Integrates with Electronics, Pneumatics and I-O

The CoDeSys embedded controller CPX-CEC, with its IEC 61131-3 compatible programming environment, allows 61131 users to be able to use existing code, libraries and function blocks to reduce programming.

With the industrial pneumatics moving more into electronics, the controller and its CPX terminals provide machine builders with the means of overseeing all the units, including pneumatic, electric drives or I-O functions. The unit can operate autonomously or in conjunction with a host controller, such as a master PLC, and be used an intelligent slave in fieldbus systems to provide localized pre-processing.

Other features include a 400MHz low power consumption 32-bit processor, backed by 64MB of memory, and an Ethernet 10/100 Base-T interface for programming and host controller communications. The controller can accommodate communication protocols CANopen, DeviceNet, EtherCat, EtherNet/IP, Interbus, Modbus TCP (transmission communication protocol), Profibus and Profinet.

Carries an IP65/67 rating against dust and water ingress, and has the ability to deploy the CPX terminal and its constituent modules in the same environment as the machine itself.
